The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) assists people with disabilities to succeed at work and live independently. We believe that anyone with a disability who wants to work, can work, regardless of the type or severity of their disability. We work closely with a variety of partners and stakeholders, including our vendors, employers, state and federal agencies, Workforce Centers and Centers for Independent Living. DVR uses public funds to provide our services so it is important that this money be used responsibly according to our policy, rules and regulations.
The programs described on this website are funded, in part, with federal funds awarded by the U.S. Department of Education under the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR). For purposes of the VR program, the federal VR grant paid 78.7 percent of the total costs of the program. In federal fiscal year (FFY) 2023, DVR was awarded $48,511,807 in federal VR funds. Non-federal funds paid 21.3 percent of the total costs ($11,911,394) under the VR program.

Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Accessibility
"The State of Colorado believes that an equitable, diverse, and inclusive workplace is one where all employees and community partners, whatever their gender, race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, citizenship status, education, disability, socio-economic status, or any other identity, feel valued and respected.
